About us

We’re a friendly team of designers and developers working from our studio in the heart of Cardiff.

Mark and Laura talking

Hi, we’re Karolo! Let us introduce ourselves…

Back in 2011, graphic designer Mark Stevenson and developer Chris Hardwick were colleagues and friends with big ideas. Blending Mark’s eye for design and Chris’ technical know-how, Karolo was born to offer brand and web design services to great people.

We believe that to get the best results you need to work with experts. Rebelling against the ‘jack of all trades’ approach, we offer only what we specialise in, deliver what we promise, and take great pride in the results.

Christian and Dave talking

We stay honest

Successful relationships are built on trust, whether it’s trusting each other as a team, or building trust in our clients. Honesty is integral to everything we do so we’ll always be up front about costs and timeframes. And don’t worry about baffling tech-speak; we work in plain English, so you’ll always know what we’re talking about.

We encourage curiosity

Technology, design trends, internet safety. Everything in our industry is changing constantly, so we’re always learning. While our core values stay the same, our processes and services are regularly updated to ensure we’re working to our full potential while providing the best results for our clients and their end-users.

We foster connections

We don’t see our clients as faceless entities; we know our clients through the individuals we talk to. We champion small businesses and support local charities, and we understand that each person’s requirements will be unique to them. We have flexible processes and pricing to ensure we’re always providing the support our clients need.

These guys are a dream to work with. Right from the beginning they took time to really understand our business and what we were looking for in our new website. They led us step by step through the development process right through to launch. We are very pleased with the end results and have had very positive feedback from stakeholders on the new website too.
